Well, we (Mrs. WoodrookieII) decided we needed to have chickens for free range eggs. My contribution would be the chicken coop. It had to be esthetically pleasing. The foot print is 4×8, standard stick and frame with T111 sheeting. The outside boxes are the nests, 2 per side, with 2 nests per box. Each box has a hinged lid so as to retrieve eggs without the need to enter the coop. 2 roosts are inside the coop. Chicken entry doors on each end with 1 people door. Wheels make for moving it quite easy. Has electricity for lights and heat lamp and for the heated water bucket. (No running water.) Currently houses 12 layers (no rooster!!), and we get 12 eggs a day.
